Across the world, there are currently 114 million young people lacking literacy skills. 

Literacy is the pathway to a better quality of life. It has the power to improve health and diminish poverty for individuals, families and communities, and is fundamental to economic and social progress. We believe that the value of a storybook is equal to that of a textbook and admire a creative approach to increasing literacy levels.
